Needle Size Question

March 11, 2007

I just picked up the book and love just about all of the patterns! I’ve been active in all of the Nancy Bush KALs for quite some time and am used to her patterns which brings me to the needle-size question. I was surprised to see how large the needle size is on many of the patterns. I’m used to knitting socks with 2.0mm or 2.25 and several of these patterns use US size 3’s and larger. I can understand using that size with the Dale of Norway Heilo yarn but fingering weight? I guess my question is, does anyone else find this unusual? And, for those of you have knit some of these patterns already, is the sizing working?

I have already loved reading your posts and seeing the pictures and hope to jump in soon. I am almost through the first cuff of the Retro Rib socks.
